Metra issues apology for BNSF delays
A statement was issued by the head of Metra Wednesday apologizing for recent delays on the BNSF line.
Chief Executive Officer Alex Clifford said in the statement that Metra and BNSF are working to minimize delays and provide reliable service.
"I recognize these delays were frustrating, and I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced," he said. According to the statement, an inbound train was delayed for about 75 minutes Friday morning due to a door malfunction in Naperville.
On Monday evening, 13 BNSF trains were delayed eight to 56 minutes due to a power failure at the Downers Grove Fairview station.
Then, on Tuesday evening, 16 trains were delayed, most between 15 to 30 minutes, due to a signal problem at Chicago Union Station.
